Basically this. If you are going to a Halloween event and don't want to get scared, just don't go. You can't fix stupid... These No Boo laces sound a bit over the top, if you ask me.
I would just roll on the floor if parks made you sign a waiver before getting into their houses, just to avoid this litigious situations... People must be really desperate to be looking for this kind of money, and it's because of those people that we can't have nice things (well, not me, I live in Europe ).
As a haunter, I find this amusing. There was this one night this past year where a mother was trying to push me out of the way for trying to scare her kids. So I just went off on the biggest rant about how she thinks she can come into my house and tell me what to do and that I was going to nail her to a chair and kill and eat her kids in front of her.

Reading what little info is available on this, it seems less that the kid got scared and more that she feel down and got hurt. If it was just "emotional damage" done by going to a Halloween event, the Reasonably Prudent Person standard would blow this case out of the water. The fact that there may be physical injuries caused by a fall makes it a little less difficult to dismiss on that basis. Still, if they're going to try to link the injury to the interaction with the ghouls ... well ... good luck. I'd offer the conjecture that they're looking for a quick settlement.
So I did not hear about this until browsing RCDB just now: According to RCDB, Laser will be making an appearance at Wierner Prater this year! Glad it's still running! Even though I've ridden very few Shwartzkopfs, I'm glad to see that this one seems to be doing fine!

Winterfest is clearly coming at some point. When? I don’t know and honestly after going to the Carowinds event I don’t really care but it would be nice for locals and I have no doubt that one of these days the teases that I always think are about Winterfest will actually be about Winterfest.
